Alice Huffman, president of the NAACP, the main organization for the protection of civil rights of African-Americans, criticized the picture and demanded the resignation of its author, Marilyn Davenport, a member of the Orange County Republican Party Committee (south of Los Angeles) and current member of the ultra-conservative "TeaParty. " "Representing the President of the United States otherwise than as a human being can only be considered racist," she said in a statement.

Two other civil rights associations have joined the critics and asked Davenport's resignation.The image distributed by e-mail has the following caption: "Now you know why — No birth certificate!" a reference to the republican movement that questions Obama's birth in the United States.

On Monday night, Davenport and apologized, but without resigning. "To all my fellow citizens and all persons who have seen the e-mail and felt offended, I humbly apologize for my reckless behavior." 

Republicans ensure that it is "an imperfect Christian who tries to give you the best in it to glorify Christ" and promised not to ever make the "same mistake". According to one of his fellow Republicans, Davenport had received death threats after this discussion. Orange County Republican Committee, Chairman Scott Baugh, strongly condemned the message to his colleague. He warned, however, that California law prohibits it from a removal from office.
"All I can do is to adopt a resolution condemning his actions and to persuade him to apologize and resign," he said.

Initially, Davenport responded to the emergence of a jocular tone of this case in the local press. "You will not make a scandal out of it, right? But finally! All people who know me also know I'm not racist. It was a joke. I have colored friends," she told the Orange County Weekly newspaper.
